Voters ended up on long lines at the city of Camdens new Hobkirks Hill precinct, a consolidation of two former precincts, Camden Nos. 3 and 4. Poll workers briefly held the line due to a problem where city of Camden candidates were not showing up on the electronic voting screens. - photo by Denise Schnese
Absentee voting statewide and in Kershaw County hit an all-time high this election cycle as more than 375,000 South Carolinians cast their ballots before Election Day. Kershaw County Voting Registration Director Rosalind Watson estimated absentee voting in the county this year nearly doubled that of the 2010 election. “We’ve had about 6,600 absentee ballots overall,” Watson said Tuesday.
